2018 Summer Concert #1: Mozart/Shostakovich

Sold out


Rain Location

8:30 pm

Thursday, August 16, 2018

In the first full concert of the summer, Yonah begins with a short and brutally demanding virtuosic work by the prominent Israeli composer, Menachem Zur. Eliana Razzino Yang, fresh from Itzhak Perlman’s elite summer program, then joins Gabe for a virtuosic cello duet by Paganini. The quartet then comes together for Mozart’s crystalline and late D Major string quartet, K.499, a work which is about as perfect as a piece of music can be. The program ends with another late work, Shostakovich’s alternately elegiacal, whimsical, and cynical string quartet #11.
